Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet. Boots faster than a standard 5400 rpm drive. I was getting 110mb/s on reads and writes. Fantastic amount of storage space. I didn't hear any noise during operation. Played well with Windows and Linux, dual boot was not a problem. Nice to see a three year warranty. No bad sectors.

Cons: Packing. I was under the impression that bubble wrap and peanuts for HDD packing were a thing of the past.

Other Thoughts: If you are expecting this drive to out perform a 7200 rpm drive or an SSD, look elsewhere. This is by no means a "high" performance drive. It is a nice sized, quiet, fairly fast drive that will offer a boost for an aging laptop even if using sata 2 speeds. It would be nice to see this in a 7200 rpm drive for laptops in the future.

NETGEAR WNR1500-100NAS N300 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

5 out of 5 eggs WNR1500-100NAS N300 Router 04/06/2013

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR1500-100NAS N300 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Easy set up. Basic plug and play. Very good wireless signal. Works with both Windows and Linux units. No software install needed.

Cons: NetTalk Duo is not compatible with this router, this is due to the limitations of the NetTalk device, not because of any fault with the router.

Other Thoughts: This is a great router for home use, I live in a single level 1600 square foot home and have good wireless signal thru the house and well into the back yard and my garage. Device is set up very near the center of the house. Using 2 wireless and 4 wired devices, with no problems.

Seagate Momentus Thin ST320LT007 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Standard sata and power connectors. Thin.
When it ran it was good.

Cons: Should have been packed better. The "cradles" that were holding the drive were fine, but, the cradles and drive were in a box that was too big, allowing the drive to move around. Some inner box packing is needed to prevent this. I don't know if the inner package was done by Newegg or Seagate.
After 17 Hours of use, drive has developed 38 bad sectors, and over 1,000 read errors. I am unable to boot the drive or reformat it. Neither Window or Linux recognize the drive now. I feel that this is due to the drive being able to bounce around inside the inner box.

Other Thoughts: This drive is fine for a tablet or notebook, but if you have a high power laptop, I would be leery of getting this, as the read and write speeds fall off rapidly on large file transfers. Small file transfers are good (less than 1K). The inner box packing really need to be addressed, if you are going to pack a laptop drive in a desktop box, pad it, so it doesn't bounce around.
